From what I understand it's not the size that matters, but the message count that matters. Each user can be setup with different size limitations and this will be determined by how much space you have available on your exchange server. However, I would recommend keeping the message count between 2500-5000 messages for my critical path folders and then about 1000 for Calendar and Contacts.
